Midnight ravers, all-nighters, night owls, nighthawks, “last call”… or is this just the beginning? Vestige Concept Gallery wants to know what happens long after the sun goes down. After Hours seeks to showcase works of art that feature nightlife and/or, life, at night. Works can be non-representational and emotive of the feelings of after hours (sultry, dark, cool) or, could be figurative and representational about people, bars and nightclubs, speakeasys, smoky lounges, filled with musicians: jazz, blues, soul, rock, hip-hop… to late night diners, taking the El-train, taxis, drag, drag racing, street life, gangsters, graffiti, hookups, drinking, sex, nudes, parties, and drugs. Have a nightcap and catch the red-eye. (But remember, keep it classy!)

The artist, emerging or established, will be selected by International Arrivals, whose core mission is to support artists from countries in conflict or whose identities are at risk. International Arrivals will co-host an event with the artist at Trinity Church, NJ.

DEADLINE for application:  January 15, 2023

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers, and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need.


To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.

No deadline.

Our Artist Residency program assists talented, self-directed and committed artists in the creation of work. The program provides necessary financial support, access to high-end facilities, and proper technical assistance and education. Our hope is to create a transformative experience that enriches the individual artist and the community of PPAC.

Each individual residency will be one month long. Timing is flexible, but the proposed project must occur within the residency term of October 1, 2020 to June 1, 2021.

The month-long residency should be used to advance your artistic practice in a meaningful way. Artists may submit proposals that include the continuation/completion of work already in process or the creation of new work.

Our local artists are the heart and soul of this community. That’s why Herald Publishing, which owns both River Towns Magazine and the Bucks County Herald, is so passionate about supporting local artists and helping to sustain a thriving arts community. It is that same passion that led to the creation of the Art of the River Towns Juried Show and Sale, co-chaired by Pearl and Chuck Mintzer, and the creation of this new online sales gallery. We didn’t want the postponement of the show until October, or what’s happening with our local economy generally to impede our efforts to generate sales for our artists.

In the coming weeks and months, this commitment will be translated into a significant level of marketing and promotional support for the online sales gallery—geared to promote sales of your work. All local artists are welcome to submit work. These are tough times for everyone, including our artists. For this reason, we are inviting all local artists, not just those whose work was selected by our jury for the Art of the River Towns Show, to submit work for sale on our Art of the River Towns Online Sales Gallery.

DEADLINE: Ongoing
